In a letter from Sen. McConnell to McGrath, McConnell stressed the importance of holding a debate with a statewide reach between the two candidates and laid out a framework under which the debate can take place:

Senator McConnell says the debate would be with no notes, no table, no props and no audience.

WKYT and our sister station WAVE in Louisville have invited both candidates for a statewide debate. That debate would air in Lexington and Louisville, along with the seven other Gray television stations that serve Kentucky.

Sen. McConnell has agreed to the debate. McGrath has neither accepted or declined the invitation.

A time and date for the debate have not been announced.
